Re: LED Lighting

welcome to PSN.
you probably are not going to like this answer, buy i recommend NOT switching to led lights.
LED's tend to cause issues with other circuits not working properly, especially the automatic trans when used in the brake light/blinker circuit.

I would probably just do head lights and roof lights. Maybe reverse lights Would that be ok?

Re: LED Lighting

probably. the only LED lights i use are add on under the bumper for reverse.
this way i can aim there where i need them.
i do not use them in the headlights out of courtesy to other drivers.
instead of blinding oncoming drivers with super bright lights, i slow down and drive in the light the factory lights provide.

Re: LED Lighting

Some of the new ones out seem okay.
It's definitely not comparable to putting hids into a non projector housing. Lol
I would say try some.

This has to be the most intelligent post ever.
"I don't want to blind other drivers. I slow down".
Wow. Thanks for not blinding us other drivers and for being intelligent enough to slow down. Genius.
